SIR JAMES FITZJAMES STEPHEN, K.C.S.I.
&c. &c. &c.
MY DEAR STEPHEN,
Fifteen years ago you dedicated one of your books to me, and in now offering to you this less worthy gift, the fittest words that I can find are almost those which you addressed to me. I dedicate this book to you as an erpression of strong personal regard and of gratitude for great kindness, and in recollection of that time, in India when we served together and which neither of us can forget.
I am, my dear Srephen,
Your sincere friend and lute colleague,
